Ogilvie Pavilion and Sports Ground, Thorpe Road, Thorpeness
Leiston, Suffolk IP16 4FD United Kingdom

A really good Bank Holiday rally once again with a different set of marshals.  Pleased to see a trainee in action, thanks to Mike and Sallyann Biggs.  Good turnout around 46 vans with one 1st rallier and 7 visitors.  Lovely site within walking distance of the centre and the Meare. One downpour didn’t seem to stop anyone and once the sun returned so did the BBQ’s.  New marshals have come forward for next year.  Thanks to all involved.  Janet and Alan Dobson
